Property Details

This five-bedroom home nestles on the side of the valley in one of Cornwall’s most dramatic beauty spots, set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with views down to the sea. The beach is less than 500 metres away. The village boasts a public house serving good food, two excellent cafés, a beach shop and a pair of clifftop tennis courts.
The house is split over various ‘half-levels’ with two bedrooms at the top, two at the bottom of the first flight of stairs, either side of the bathroom, and another bedroom at the bottom of the next flight of stairs, next to the shower room.
Upon entering the house through the front door there is a modern open plan kitchen with a fridge, freezer, microwave and dishwasher. There is a bench-like dining table with benches within the space, a TV room with a sofa and bean bags and a comfortable sitting room area with sofa and chairs arranged around a wood burning stove for those cosy evenings can also be found on this level.
There are steps to the lower floor of the property where you will find utility room with a washing machine and tumble dryer. There is also an additional toilet in this area.

There is an outdoor shower next to the back door to allow you to wash off the sand after a day on the beach or surfing. The back door opens on to a covered area which is useful to store surfboards, wetsuits and coats.

There is a patio around the house with a surrounding fence and a barbecue for guests to use.

“We really enjoyed our stay at Pentreath. Very spacious and light inside, well equipped and nice area to sit outside as well. Just 5 minutes walk to the beach and great views down to the sea and across the valley.” Mark and Joanna.

The Area

What we love about the area...

Crackington Haven is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It was once a small harbour importing coal and limestone and it has managed to escape any development so remains a small unspoiled, secret cove.

When the conditions are right it is a great surfing spot and there is a lifeguard during the summer holiday weeks. In the spring the cliffs are covered in heather and it is a wonderful place to see the wild flowers and hear the birdsong.

The gently sloping beach is perfect for exploring or for relaxing and although pebbly when the tide is high there is plenty of sand for building castles once the tide heads out. Crackington really is a special place, perfect for a family holiday away from the crowds.

The Cabin Café in the village across the road from the beach serves lovely local produce and homemade goodies. The family pub, The Coombe Barton Inn, serves delicious food and surf boards, wetsuits and beach items can be hired or bought at the beach front.

Local Things to do (as advised by the tourist office):

Take a wooded valley walk inland from the car park and enjoy the breathtaking scenery and wildlife.

Take a walk North to Pencarrow Point and climb up to Cornwall’s highest cliff at 735 feet.

Discover the inspiring parish of St Gennys: churches, ancient farms, historical sites & buildings and tales of shipwrecks.

Observe the famous zig-zag folds and faults in rock formations formed millennia ago, from black shale, sandstone and quartz veins.

As the tide goes out see what you can find while rock pooling.

For those looking to travel a little further afield, the lovely towns of Boscastle, Bude and Tintagel are all within a reasonable drive and offer a wide array of cafe’s, bars and restaurants, as well as independent retailers offering locally sourced produce and merchandise.

Boscastle offers many interesting eateries, and here are a few of our favourites:

For a tasty lunch or snack, try the Boscastle Farm Shop, and if you happen to be there on a Sunday, the roast dinners are fantastic!

If you’re planning a day on the beach, make sure you drop into the Boscastle Bakery to stock up on amazing pasties and cakes.

Finally, for an evening meal to remember, try The Rocket Store on Valency Row with lovely seasonal dishes and a great wine selection.

Bude is located approximately 8 miles away, and has a wide range of eateries, catering for all pockets. In no particular order, why not try:

The Coffee Pot on Morwenna Terrace is a great place for a late breakfast or tasty lunch, with a wide range of panini’s and filled sandwiches – and of course, great coffee.

For something a little different, try The Bank Tapas Bar, which serves great tapas and has a good selection of vegan dishes.

Sea Fever on Summerleaze Crescent offers a great fresh seafood menu, with lots of seasonal offerings.
